A brief trip to Cologne in September for Kodak to light their stand at Photokina 2010. Fingers crossed for some releases by Nikon to rival the gorgeous 5DMkII. Had a snoop around the Nikon stand but nothing out as yet.

In April 2010 the Gurkha Welfare Trust held an evening in Salisbury for supporters of the Trust’s work and Joanna Lumley was there to lend her support and open the exhibition of the retired WWII Gurkha photographs.
Robert’s touring exhibition of 20 portraits which were shot in Nepal were on display for the evening before moving on the next day to a gallery in Salisbury for a couple of months.
The photographs were taken in Nepal in 2008 during a commission by the Gurkha Welfare Trust to document the lives of the retired Gurkhas and their familes in the remote Himalayan villages in Nepal. In total 5 weeks on location and incredible amounts of planning went into finding the soldiers, trekking on foot to find them (hoping that they would be in when arriving) and capturing their spirit.
The collection of 20 portraits is available to spaces around the UK so if you are interested in hosting the exhibition please contact me to discuss possible dates. There are currently 20 pieces in the exhibition, all 18×12″ framed prints onto exhibition grade Cibachrome-style paper. All pictures are supplied with a biography of the individual in the picture including their personal and professional profile.

My exhibition of retired WWII Gurkha soldiers opened at the Salisbury Festival in 2009 and has since been touring the UK. Since the new blog is now online I’m updating it with past stories and here are a few pictures from the exhibition from back in June 2009. I shot the work from the Gurkha Welfare Trust on location in Nepal and you can read more about the expedition on my website.
If you have or know of a gallery who would like to host the exhibition, please get in touch.
